The roof insulation and the ice and water protector have been placed on the metal
deck. Using the wand (Polhemus stylus),
Chris is picking up a strip of metal which
will act as a kicker for the first row of tiles (the component that is
touched or moved turns red). In front of Chris, one can see the
menu-driven interface (in light blue) that allows users to move and rotate
the model, and to zoom in and out.
Chris has "installed" the kicker and the gutter assembly piece at the roof
edge. He is getting ready to place the roof tiles (which have turned red
since Chris is touching them with the wand).
The tiles have been placed, and have reverted from red
back to their model color blue. The stucco has also been placed. Martin
is moving the gutter into place.
The roof is fully assembled. The whole assembly took just a few minutes
and can be repeated easily, or an alternate sequence can be tried until
agreement about the best assembly and installation sequence between all
contractors has been reached.
Chris and Martin have rotated the model to inspect and discuss the roof
assembly plus the supporting structure and fireproofing.
